Thomas Prendergast

Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Thomas Prendergast researches modern Europe from a global and Jewish perspective. He is particularly interested in the history of empire, nationalism, law, and the social sciences. At the Katz Center, he will examine how a transnational intellectual movement aimed to rehabilitate multinational statehood and challenge the core assumptions of nineteenth-century European legal thought.

Prendergast received his PhD from Duke University. He was previously a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Jewish History and Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and, prior to that, a Fulbright Junior Visiting Fellow at the Internationales Forschungszentrum Kulturwissenschaften (IFK) in Vienna.
